I've Got to Hand it to You!

CNN.com has posted a story about a man who chopped his hand off and cooked it in the microwave because he thought it had "the mark of the beast." The best line in the whole story:
"It is not immediately clear whether the man has a history of mental illness." Let me point something out to CNN that should be relatively obvious: It's now VERY clear that the man has a history of mental illness!

Reading this reminds me of the admonition that our class of CPE interns received at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in DC: 'Never preach on Mark 9:42-48 to the residents here, because they will take it literally.'
